Perrysburg lieutenant promoted to deputy police chief


PERRYSBURG — The city will soon have a new deputy police chief. Lt. Chris Sargent will be sworn-in by Mayor Tom Mackin on Monday at 7:45 a.m.

Sargent was among three internal candidates for the position. He has worked for the Perrysburg Police Division since 2021. Previously, he was a sergeant in the Ottawa Hills Police Department where he worked for 17 years.

The city has not had a deputy police chief since 2018. The position was eliminated and replaced with two lieutenants. Since then, the division has grown and the city saw a need to bring the position back, according to a news release.

“Chris will be an asset to the city in his new position and I’m looking forward to working with him in this new capacity,” said Police Chief Patrick Jones.

Sargent will begin his new position immediately after being sworn in.
